Wash Your Hands!!

Well, if social etiquette isn't enough to convince you to spend a minute at the sink maybe this will:
Scientists have found that our skin is even filthier than previously believed. They've discovered several new species of buggies running around on our skin through the use of genetic testing (sound like a fun grad project anyone?) The best part is that they think we are each the host of our own particularily special buggies.
Which is a delightful thought given that the average guy or gal is already carting around about a 100trillion bacterial buggies on an average day. I guess they'll have to up the estimate on this one. Doesn't that just make you want go rush out, kiss and swap skin flora with your sweetheart?
